I have been curious lately about something Sugano Sensei said a while back in Australia. He said that while doing Aikido we should not just plainly be doing the physical movement but experiencing it as well (something akin to how when reading a book one does not just read the words but also experiences the overall narative).
I am curious to know how other people would interpret this and personally "experience" Aikido.
Our consciousness is in our mind. Our mind ( the bridge) is between our body (earth) and our spirit (heaven). The things we do physically with our body effects the spirit not directly but through the mind.
